Toast with Poached Egg and Avocado Mash

Poached Egg Toast

Nothing beats a dreary Monday morning better than a fancy breakfast. I raided my fridge and was pleased to find avocados and tomatoes leftover from the weekend. What a perfect way to start the week.


  • 1 slice of bread
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1/2 avocado
  • hot sauce to taste
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 slices of tomato
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • salt and pepper to taste

Remove 1/2 avocado from skin and place in a bowl. Mash with a fork to desired consistency. Add your favorite hot sauce (mine is Best Boy’s RedHead Hot Sauce) and mix until just incorporated. Poach your egg. I always use Alton Brown’s method. Works like a charm. Toast the bread and butter generously. Top with avocado mash and tomato slices. When the egg is done, remove it from the water with a slotted spoon and allow excess water to drain off. Place on top of toast, top with cilantro and salt and pepper.
